The first day of the Aragon GP is already done and dusted after the FP1 and FP2 earlier today. In the combined free practice times is Marc Márquez (1:46.071) in first position with Maverick Viñales second (1:46.071) more than 1.3 away from the leader and Valentino Rossi was third (1:48.071)
The Reale Avintia Racing Team riders worked on the set up of their bikes before a QP that is expected to be on wet conditions and that’s something that both Tito Rabat and Karel Abraham are worried about. Rabat, who is racing in another home GP, hasn’t managed to go to Q2 straightaway since he finished 16th in the combined times. Karel Abraham, on the other hand, is still recovering after being ill and he finished 22nd today.

“We could not step directly for QP but we have a good race pace. If it does not rain tomorrow maybe we can try once again in FP3 and if not, we will be through Q1 and face the rain. If it finally rains it will be a pity because is not the best situation for us”
Karel Abraham | P22
“I enjoyed today in a circuit that I do really like even if it was not easy because I don’t feel at my 100% but I’m better. We hope it improves tomorrow but it’s going to rain and I’m or excited about it”
